I read the first four or five but lost interest. After investing so much time reading these thick tomes though it felt like such a bloody waste. It just teetered out and failed to be interesting any longer.
The characters I cared about didn't go anywhere and the women were one dimensional at best. There's only so much time and love you can invest in a series and 900+ page books - and I just wasn't ready to waste time slogging through this when there are other more deserving books to take up my time.
